Yeah, I kind of dropped off the face of the internet a few years back. I have to say, I've been surprised at the amount of people who still email me to see if I'm alive and encourage me to make more animations. I didn't think I was that big of a deal. So thanks for that.
So, as you can see, I'm alive. I basically just got fed up with animation. I always enjoyed it in certain ways. I love writing and voicing and making music. I loved having a creative outlet and putting what I created out there and getting feedback. It's kind of addictive. But animating is a lot of work too, and it was always a struggle for me. Drawing doesn't come easy to me, and I was getting more ambitious with my animations, and trying to get them done well and in a reasonable amount of time was just frustrating the hell out of me. Plus, running my own website was even more work.
In addition to that, I started to have more of a social life, got a job, and generally had a lot less free time. Then last year I decided to go back to school. I had discovered a love of baking, and I decided to go to culinary school. I'm almost finished with it now, and soon I will have a Baking and Pastry certificate. So, basically, I shifted my creative outlet to making cakes.
I was going to post some pics of cakes I've made here, but now I realize I can't just upload them to the news post. Maybe I'll figure out a way to share them later. Right now, all I have is a pic of something I made in my ice carving class, which is in my profile pic at the top of the page. I hand painted the NG logo and fused it between two pieces of ice. yay!
That's all I got.
